Move Logout buttom
|Priority:||Could have||Due date:|
I suggest that we move the Logout button (in the BE) to the rightmost position in the top bar.
Every(?) software has it in that position, so Typo3 should follow best practice!

Hy, thanks for the input but I'm not sure if this is a good idea.
I think it is more important to have the logout related to the username.
And in my eyes it is more important to have the search at the most right.
This is, at for Apple guys and Browser Users a default thing for the corner.
Sorry but I don't know any official UI which has the Logout at the top,right
which is well known and relevant to the end users. Do you got examples?

Are we talking about the same thing?
The most common way to end a software (even web applications) is to click on a button/link at the right top of the area the software uses.
The next most common way in web applications is to have a vertical menu bar (sometimes split inte section) but even there the Logout link/button is alwas at the top/bottom of the bar/section.
At least this is what I found out be checking most software/web applications I use:
- Collabtive (very good looking!)
- Google Analytics
- Google Adsense (nearly, has Help as the rightmost link)
- SIS-index (a swedish statistcs site I use)
- Typo3 wiki
- Typo3 Forge
- Transifex (nearly, has Language selection as the rightmost link)
- Ordinary Windows software (Close button)
- Ordinary Gnome software (Close button)
- Ubuntu (and many derivates?)
Some of them have it at the bottom of a vertical column
- PHP Nuke
- Ning (at the top)
Some of these can have the menu column slit up into sections, but still Logout is alwas at the bottom/top of a section.
TikiWiki has the Logout at the bottom of the page, all alone in the middle
There are only three applications that have the Logout link/button mixed in the middle of other buttons/link:
- Typo3 bugs (Mantis)
- Typo3 BE
But in both Mantis(?) and OpenX there is a graphical search box to the left of logout link, so there is a distinct (=easy to see) differens between the search box and the row containing the logout link.
